Pete Gutierrez and Kathy Scures-Gutierrez came to Sebastian in 1985 after graduating from dental school at Emory University. They have studied at the internationally renowned LD Pankey Institute and Dawson Center. They are both from Florida, Miami and Winter Park, respectively and were attracted to the small-town appeal of Sebastian and the proximity to the ocean. They have two children, Chase who and Zoey who after graduating from Florida State University have pursued their own careers in aviation and orthodontics. We are very excited to have Zoey close by as she is currently practicing orthodontics and is here in Sebastian 2 days a week! Pete enjoys surfing, kite boarding and guitar when the weather isn’t cooperating for his sports! Kathy plays some tennis, runs, and likes to do art projects. The family loves to travel together, usually looking for surf in remote destinations. In the future the doctors foresee combining their love for travel with their desire to serve those without access to care in undeveloped areas.

Zoey Gutierrez-Nickel

Dr. Zoey Gutierrez-Nickel, DDS, MS attended Florida State University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise science, graduating cum laude in 2014. Following FSU, she continued her quest to become an orthodontist by moving to San Francisco to attend University of the Pacific Dental School, where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.

While at dental school she was inducted into Tau Kappa Omega Honor Society for her achievements in scholarship, service and character. Dr. Zoey was then accepted as one of six residents into the highly competitive orthodontic residency at the University of Southern California where she earned her Master’s Degree in Craniofacial Biology in addition to her Certificate in Orthodontics. During her tenure at USC, she worked closely with a host of world-renowned orthodontists including the founders cutting edge technologies such as Invisalign and Inbrace. After completing residency, Dr. Zoey took the additional step in her education and became a diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics for her commitment to quality and excellent care in orthodontics.

The improvement in a patient’s self-confidence, brought about by the transformation of a patient’s smile is what drives Dr. Zoey. She takes pride in shaping more than just smiles, but yet molding a patient’s smile to fit their facial esthetic and functional needs.
